The National Institutes of Health is spending over $1.6 million on an exercise program for immigrants and refugees, which is sending “community partners” into mosques to talk about physical activity.
“Healthy Immigrant Families: Working Together to Move More and to Eat Well” is an ongoing five year study trying to create a “sustainable, socio-culturally appropriate” physical activity initiative for refugees in Minnesota.
The researchers claim that immigrants and refugees are healthier than Americans when they get to the United States, and are concerned refugees will assimilate and adopt the eating habits of Americans.
